I-Torque Delivers Superb Driveability and Reduces Fuel Consumption

Volvo Trucks is taking the lead in the development of drivelines for commercial trucks. The new Volvo I-Torque meets the Euro 6 requirements and offers exceptional driveability. Together with I-See, I-Torque also cuts fuel consumption by up to 10 percent.

The tough Euro 6 regulations are placing high demands on the engine developers to meet the new standards without negatively impacting fuel consumption. However, the new Volvo I-Torque driveline, which will begin production for Europe in autumn 2013, meets the Euro 6 requirements and offers a significant reduction in fuel consumption.As the name suggests, the explanation behind I-Torque's excellent properties lies in high torque combined with a new automated powershift gearbox. I-Torque delivers no less than 2800 Nm of torque and works at low engine revs, resulting in quiet operation.
